I have something personal to share.

Four weeks ago my husband was diagnosed with Leukemia. This came totally out of the blue; he was feeling fine but noticed some strange spots and bruises on his legs. The type of Leukemia he has (APL) is treatable and the outlook is good, but it will be a long haul. He is in the hospital now, nearing the end of his first round of chemotherapy. After this first round, he’ll be home for a few weeks, then back in the hospital for another month.

We’re both working hard to live the dream – make a living doing work we enjoy, with freedom over our time and the ability to travel, relax, explore, and enjoy life. It’s not easy, we’re not quite there yet, and this diagnosis adds a big hurdle to the mix. In fact, one of my first thoughts was, “Okay Cathy, the dream is over, time to stop working toward something that’s impossible and get a Real Job.” But I don’t think I can let the dream go. Deep down I still believe it’s possible. 

Since the beginning of this year I’ve been drawing and painting nearly every day. I now have a huge number of small works that I have not yet offered for sale, and now is the time. I’m only offering the ones I’m most proud of, the ones I love the most, and I’m offering them at a special discount that you won’t be able to get at any other time. Please, won’t you take a look? Also, I’d love it if you could share this post to spread the word.
